Summons issued despite not breaking rules
A MOTORIST has claimed that he was slapped with a summons despite not breaking any parking rules.
On Feb 13, W.B. Soh had parked his SUV in Jalan Banggol, in Kuala Terengganu, at 8.10am to run an errand in the city.
“The parking meter clearly showed that there were 23 minutes left for the parking spot,” said Soh, who is from Gong Badak, Kuala Nerus.
When he returned, he said he was shocked to see that the Kuala Terengganu City Council (MBKT) personnel had left a summons slip on his windscreen for purportedly violating parking rules.
He claimed that several motorists who parked in that stretch also experienced the same predicament. He hoped MBKT would address the issue.
MBKT mayor Samiun Salleh said he directed the head of parking services division to investigate the matter upon receiving the complaint.
He said Soh’s problem was resolved the same day.
“We despatched an officer to meet Soh to get more details.
“We found that a mistake had been committed by our traffic warden.
“Soh’s summons has been revoked and he has been notified,” said Samiun.
